Mail…It’s a Problem on the Road

Our Tiny Living Dirty Secret

We have a whole room filled with our stuff at my mom’s house. And it’s not a small room- it’s what would normally be the “formal living room” (over the years it’s been household storage, a bedroom, a proper living room, a guest room, where the Christmas tree went, and…

Living in a tiny house is all about managing clutter. It’s like a never ending battle to keep the place tidy. Mike and I have been having to renegotiate how we store everything because so many things are not working out the way that we had planned and anticipated now…
